We Have The Technology: Jamie Metzl and Building Better Humans


Genetic engineering, especially of the human kind, is one of the most emotional debates in the arena of science vs. religion and technological advancement vs. ethics. Jamie Metzl has written, spoken, and advocated policy extensively on this subject, which he feels is an unavoidable step in the relentless advance of scientific understanding and ability. Besides the misgivings some may have about "playing God" or whether it's even moral to alter the fate of an unborn human, one of the biggest debates over how the genetic revolution will play out is in the way it will transform societies- will people willing and able to create genius children have far better life outcomes than those unwilling or unable to do so? What about nations with genetically "superior" soldiers, scientists, and economists, vs. those in which this technology is outlawed or severely limited?
